Annie-Danielle Grenier, patient advocate

  1. Annie-Danielle Grenier, patient advocate Moyez Jiwa 30:08

Annie-Danielle Grenier raises awareness and advocates for rare diseases, living with a few herself.

She mostly does this as a writer, public speaker and through her blog turned website: Ma vie de zèbre (My Zebra Life). Annie-Danielle launched Ma vie de zèbre in 2013 because she had difficulty finding information in French on hypermobile Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, her only rare diagnosis at the time, and what little she could find wasn’t relatable to her province of Québec (Canada). She wanted to changed that!

Annie-Danielle is very active as a patient partner, involved in many management, education and research projects and doing things like shaping policies, educating future healthcare professionals, working in bioethics research, and much more.

Annie-Danielle was a translator and editor (in French and in English) and before that worked many years in show business (on stage but also behind the scenes). She has a bachelor’s degree in psychology, but also studied in Arts and literature and in event production.

Annie-Danielle’s atypical life experiences give her a different view on things, which she loves to share with people and, she hopes, can inspire. Her motto is that life’s obstacles are not obstacles to happiness!

Moyez Jiwa is a general practitioner, journal editor and podcast host. Professor Jiwa leads a medical school based in Melbourne, Australia. He authored the book The Art of Doctoring. He believes that healthcare can improve by focusing on the quality of the meeting between health care professional and patient. This would forge a truly meaningful partnership between doctor and patient as co-pilot in care. It would also reduce rates of burnout among doctors and future proof healthcare in a world where the population is ageing and more likely to be living with more complex health care conditions.
